Fortunately for Bulgaria, the interest towards the tourism stand of our country on the tourism expo ' Intourmarket 2008' in Moscow was much higher than the one towards the stands of Greece and Turkey.
That was announced by the State Agency of Tourism (SAT) director Anelia Krushkova.
The Bulgarian stand was opened yesterday, it is located immediately next to the entrance of the exposition's hall.
Bulgaria is presented by 30 tourist firms and the representatives of Bulgaria have conducted meetings with the representatives of the tour operators.
On the meeting the Russian tour - operators have brought forward few concrete problems connected with the visa issuing for Russian citizens, who want to visit Bulgaria.
The issuing of visas was extremely hard, the Russians complained.
Other problem is connected with the lack of airplanes to Bulgaria, which to transport all the tourists, who want to come to Bulgaria.
Today the program of the Bulgarian stand continues with presentation of SPA and Wellness tourism in Bulgaria.
